Winter thoughts...


I have to confess, Diane, I am completely stumped by this challenge! I will need to focus more time on what exactly weather means - it gets blurred with atmospheric phenomena and climate change in my mind, and while they are all relatives, I need to focus..... Good thing I have some time.

These are photos of winter where I live. I live here deliberately because I don't care for snow and ice and freezing temperatures for weeks on end. That said, I appreciate the beauty of snow and the seasons....usually from a safe distance.

Being in Japan this past winter meant I needed to be out in the cold and snow every day and reflecting back on it, I think it was part of what made the experience so memorable.

All bundled, cozy and warm in my down parka, I stood in gently falling snow, in beautiful, peaceful surroundings and didn't even notice the cold. Funny how that works....
